My favorite dress I've ever rented

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
While listing that it runs small, it only runs small in one place-- natural waist/rib cage. Otherwise, very true to size. I was still able to wear my usual 4, but with a tighter bra (and I don't have a particularly large chest), and it was snug. I loved the shape it gave me, though it definitely needs a good necklace to counter the very high neckline. The one on the model is what I rented and it was PERFECT. In real life, the fabric feels very rich, and the color is much prettier than the pictures make it out to be. Lastly, pockets. Enough said.

Small in bust for sure but overall amazing dress

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The only complaint I have about this dress is there's really no stretch to the fabric. I have 34DD and I usually wear a size 8. I pretty much had to cram my chest to for in a size 8 and the size 10 wasn't available. But it didn't look crazy after zipping it since the fabric is pretty thick.

Pretty and flattering dress

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This is a pretty and comfortable dress. I sized up which made it very comfy around the waist. The armholes & shoulders were perhaps a little big on me, but I prefer to be comfortable over wearing a dress that squeezes me. It's fairly thick fabric, and it is completely lined. This particular dress no longer had its rose gold zipper; it had been replaced by a silver zipper which didn't slide all that smoothly. Took quite a bit of care to keep the lining from getting stuck in the zipper. Also, the dress needed a good pressing to remove what looked like "bubbles" between the outer layer and what it was bonded to. The dress had some condition issues, but RTR customer service resolved them very well. I also chose the necklace shown on the model - thought it went with the dress nicely.

This dress was really nice and fun to wear. It was very comfortable and had pockets. My first dress arrived damaged with a hem that hung below it but Rent the Runway was able to send out another the next morning just in time for me to leave to our function. The dress fit in my usual size and I did not order a backup size. I would rent this dress again.

Fits true to size for Kate Spade, could have worn the 2 but it was small in the bust so stayed with the 4. The material is gorgeous but lined and thick, so be careful if it's hot out!

I don't think the photos do this dress justice. I feel in love when I put this dress on. It's a thicker fabric but was perfect for a summer outdoor wedding August. I loved all the shades if gray and pink in the dress! Fits pretty true to size and has pockets! It fit me like a glove and did not want to send it back. I received many compliments and felt great all night in the dress!! I so rented the Lilly Pulitzer necklace the model is wearing, I loved it with the dress. Although the dress a busy pattern, the necklace was a great addition. #wedding #popofcolor

The material is a bit heavy, so it's probably not great for a super hot day. I also don't think if you are particularly large-chested that it would work for you, as it fit me exactly.

The dress fit perfectly. It was extremely flattering. All the reviews about it being snug through the chest were accurate. It was comfortable and absolutely beautiful. Some folks said that the pink was more than expected. I thought all of the colors mixed well. Love RTR can't wait for my next event!

I am between dress sizes 4 and 6 at the moment as my lower half is now a six :(. However, this dress was perfect in a 4 with this silhouette and I was still able to step into it.

I thought this dress fit true to size and was flattering overall. Looking back at the pictures from the event, I do feel that the fullness of the dress made me look a tad bit larger than I am in the hip and fanny area.

Fit - a little tight around the bust. Probably should have sized up to an 8 for my second size. I didn't even try on the 4, the 6 fit for sure, but would have been good to have another option. Love that it came down almost to my knees. I hate dresses that are too short. Pretty conservative cut, which I really like, but still a super fun print!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small

I loved the dress, but it definitely runs small. The six was fine once someone else helped zip me into it. The fabric is a bit thick which was great for a cold October day, but you would want to be careful of in warm weather. Fun dress and got lots of compliments, but not one of my favorite rentals.

This dress is unique but didn't steal the bride's show!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was great for a fall outdoor wedding. The material is substantial, but at the same time not too heavy. I did wear a sweater as the night went on and the temp dropped. As mentioned in previous reviews, the cut was tight in the ribcage area (but I am busty). That being said, I could still fit into the 10 which is my normal size. The A-line cut was really flattering for my curvy shape - accentuating areas I like and hiding those I don't. This was my first experience with RTR and I will definitely use this website again!

Very cute dress but tight in upper back/shoulders

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This Kate Spade dress is so fun- playful pattern and forgiving A-line shape in the skirt. But let me tell you- it was tight in the upper back/shoulder area for me. I know I have a broad back but I had to have my boyfriend zip me in and it was slightly uncomfortable at first but manageable. Fortunately you can wear a regular bra with this dress no problem (it even has the built in snaps on top of each shoulder so you can keep the straps in place). Received the best compliment from another wedding guest, "You are so pretty, like movie star pretty!" That was enough to make up for the tightness! Order one size up from what you would normally wear and you'll be all set!

Fun flirty dress!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress to a baby shower and it was the perfect dress for the occasion. Classic Kate Spade, this dress is conservative up top, tight through the torso, and very bouncy and feminine in the skirt. I would have given this dress 5 stars however the lining was about 3 inches lower than the dress. It was really embarrassing and I had to tuck the lining into my tights! Other than that, I would recommend this dress to anyone…especially someone that has a smaller waist and larger hips.

Gorgeous dress, I really stood out in a sea of black

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Party
This dress was beautiful! I rented an 8 and a 10 and I think I was between sizes. I ended up wearing the 8, but it was very tight around my chest. I wear a DD, so this is a common problem for me. I wore with black tights for an anniversary party and was complimented all night.

I wore this to a "Best Friend Date Night" to go to the theater to see Newsies. It was great! It was cold here, but the fabric was plenty thick enough to keep me warm. I also got more compliments on this dress than I've ever gotten on one from my own wardrobe, and that felt nice :) I'm looking forward to renting another dress for the next show we see! Thanks, RTR!

Not my favorite ...

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This was my least favorite dress I've rented from RTR. The material is very thick. The lining gets in the way of the zipper, not to mention it hung lower than the dress itself which I can't stand. There were multiple ... ripples (?) in different parts of the dress and not having a steamer I was afraid to iron it so I had to let them be. The only thing I liked about this dress was that it sucked in my stomach and had pockets.

I am a kate spade addict, however, this dress runs large! I wore the size 2 and the waist was huge.... I wore a black thin belt and it made a huge difference, I'm very surprised this dress doesn't bring a belt. The fabric is on the thicker side, the pockets are deep. The zipper on the back is a little tricky, I needed help. Overall great dress

Classy, modest dress worn to a baptism.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
The top and midsection area runs a bit small. I could have gotten away with the 4, but the 6 gave a bit more room up top and in the middle. If you are larger up top I would aim towards the next size up. Great overall fit and look as the top and waist area is fitted and the bottom flairs out. Perfect balance of modesty and sophistication I need to wear to the church to christen my godson.

Great bridal luncheon dress!!!

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this for my future sister in law's bridal luncheon. The 6 fit better in the waist, but there's no way I could have worn a bra as it was very tight up top. The 8 was a little looser than I would prefer in my waist, but not wearing a bra wasn't an option. The liner was a little longer than the hemline, but you could easily fix it with fashion tape or a pin. Very comfortable, feminine dress!

Perfect classic cocktail dress!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Wore this to a beautiful evening 'cocktail attire' wedding. I was nervous because they only had a size 4 and usually I'm a size 6. Thankfully, it fit perfectly! I loved the colors of the dress as well as the quality of the fabric. The style was flattering, although I thought a little black belt helped the look, and so would definitely recommend one. I wore the necklace on the model but unfortunately it arrived missing one of the jewels. I used my make-shift crafting skills to remedy this problem, but definitely NOT a problem you want the day of a nice wedding!

Very cute and flattering dress for a spring wedding! The colors were great and the fabric was thick. I added a thin black waist belt for a bit of definition which for me was needed or else my shape got a little lost in the dress. The deep pockets were definitely an added bonus, kept my phone and lip gloss in there all night! Received many compliments and overall a great rental!
